According to international reports, most of the corruption money has gone to Malta and Switzerland. This is because before 2013 most of this money went to the banks of Cyprus.

Eurozone finance ministers stated at the time that they could not guarantee any deposits over 100,000 euros in Cyprus. At that time it was reported that there were attempts to withdraw the money, with one part is taken and another part lost in those banks. For this reason, a lot of money has gone to Swiss banks.
